Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated within its own mature private woodland style gardens, Middlefield House is the most delightful detached cottage thought to have it's origins dating back to 1840. Over the past three years the current owners have sympathetically refurbished and updated the interior in keeping with its character whilst retaining many original features including beamed ceilings, ornate windows, stripped wood floors and beautiful fire places.

The charming accommodation includes:- an impressive Reception Hall and staircase with a second galleried Landing serving two reception rooms both meeting in the Kitchen. The charming Sitting Room with it's Georgian grate and dual aspect windows provides a lovely room for unwinding whilst the Dining Room is excellent for entertaining with a Yorkstone fire place, beamed ceiling and deep alcove.

Undoubtedly the farmhouse style Kitchen forms the main hub of the home extending to 18'4 fitted with a custom range of cream cabinets, free standing dressers and space for a dining table. A composite stone floor continues through into a wonderful Garden Room which has been insulated to enjoy the views onto the gardens with a French door and a signature cartwheel inserted in the brick work. Beyond, the Utility Room provides a valuable area with a high vaulted beamed ceiling and Cloakroom with w.c.

On the first floor there are three double Bedrooms each with their own charm and character, enjoying dual aspect views some with wooden strip floors. The elegant spacious Family Bathroom complete with a roll edge bath, w.c, wash hand basin and large walk in shower cubicle.

Outside there is a large double barn providing storage whilst a generous stone gravel driveway provides plenty of off road parking to one side. The front gardens have been designed in a cottage theme with clipped hedging, central pathway and shrub borders. In the Agents opinion, the rear garden forms another main attraction enjoying its own woodland style mature garden with split level patios, meandering pathways and shaped lawns. The gardens have been designed for ease of maintenance and also feature a log store, greenhouse and shed. Close bordered fencing ensures privacy for the present owners whilst mature conifers provide the perfect backdrop.

Great Coates is a popular village providing easy access onto the M180 motorway network and has it's own train station and bus route into the town centre. All in all this is most charming individual family home which must be viewed at your earliest convenience. EPC Rating - E
